What are you going to do when it’s the dead of winter, and your power goes out? That electric fireplace is now useless as you try to scramble around the house to find enough blankets to keep everyone warm. What if you’re a principal of a school? The power goes out, so you must send all the kids home. As a result, you are losing a whole day of school and getting everyone behind. Instead of letting the weather or unfortunate events ruin your day try one of these new systems!

A stepper motor is an electromechanical device that can convert electrical power into mechanical power. Stepper Motors are brushless and synchronous electrical motors that can split up a full rotation into a multiple number of steps. The position of the motor can be managed accurately without any feedback mechanism if the motor is attentively sized to the application. The theory of operation is used by the stepper motor. This theory makes the shaft of the motor turn an accurate distance when a pulse of electricity is supplied.

Microcontrollers, a small computer on a single integrated circuit, allow for input from sensors, and power LEDs to send signals to other devices over protocols. However, most microcontrollers do not have enough power alone to send signals to other devices. Thankfully, transistors exist and provide an excellent solution to higher power needs. First developed in 1922 by Julius Edgar, transistors weren’t given much thought until 1947 when physicists John Barden, William Shockley, and Walter Brattain use them to create a device while working at AT&T. This was one of the biggest milestones in technology history and transistors are now the modern building block of all computing devices.

Although Heat Shrink and Cold Shrink tubing look almost identical from the surface, their internal characteristics are incredibly different. Each of the tubing has a different insulation technique, different applications, and different physical properties. The tubing can be for a variety of applications including but not limited to, splicing, terminating, and environmental seals. This kind of tubing is more cost effective and easier on the environment than most other similar tubing.

AC-DC power supplies come in many different models with the purpose of conduction, convection, and system air cooling. These power supplies are not only used in the industrial industry, but the medical industry as well. That means they do not just have to follow industrial safety certifications and requirements, but the medical ones as well which can be very extensive and demanding.

The twenty-first century has been one of the most technology advanced era to date. With new smart devices releasing simultaneously on the market it is difficult for the consumer to keep up with the latest products. Despite the difference of companies or different style of device, most of them share the same type of units used to build each of them. The same parts such as ICs and other common components are used to build the mobile devices in the industry.
